About the Apple Trample

Our region celebrates its proud heritage during the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival.  The Bob Baronner Apple Trample 5k, is not only a 5k race but also a training program designed to get people of all abilities fit and trained for this event and beyond.  The Apple Trample 5k provides a way to have fun and exercise at the same time.  It creates awareness about healthy eating, active lifestyles, and cancer prevention.

The COVID-19 version of the Apple Trample 5K:

To keep with the recommendations of social distancing and limits on group sizes, we are not able to gather together and race this year. But to keep the tradition alive, even in the midst of a pandemic, this year we are running the 5K Virtually!!!

Thanks to our Corporate Sponsors and all of our participants, we have been able to donate $43,000 to University Healthcare Foundation’s Cancer Comfort Fund.

The cancer comfort fund helps provide emergency assistance to cancer patients locally who do not qualify for other area programs. Some of the immediate needs covered by the fund include food supplements, medication, and gas cards for transportation to and from medical appointments.
